My family descends through Melvina Benge and Gilmore House through their daughter Nancy House who married John Pennington to daughter Mittie House who married Daniel Warren. I have noticed conflicting information about Gilmore House's parents. Some say his father was James Henderson House. I believe James is Gilmore's brother and that William House and Dolly Walden are James and Gilmore's parents.Can you give me any information about this? I know that a boy Gilmore's age 11 was listed in William and Dolly's home 1850 Census. I also know that he was young enough to be the son of James H. In later years Gilmore is in a Census in James H. House's home without his wife Melvina and children. He claims to be widowed (but is not) and is listed as a son. I suspect that reference as "son" is an error. Also, do you have any information on when Gilmore died? He was alive in 1900 and gone in 1910. Melvina's death? She is alive in 1910 and claims to be a widow. Any marriage/divorce/dath papers? Does anyone have any enlightening information?
